Atacamite in Gypsum Var. Selenite
Lily Mine, Pisco Prov., Ica Dept., Peru
Small Cabinet, 6.3 x 4.7 x 3.5 cm
Ex. Martin Zinn
In the mid-1990s beautiful, combination specimens of atacamite in gypsum were available from the lily mine. This is a fine example where the dark green atacamite is included in transparent, colorless crystals of gypsum, which measure up to 2.5 cm in length. Super aesthetics and a very showy specimen overall!
